Art is the imposing of a pattern on experience, and our aesthetic enjoyment is recognition of the pattern.
Lattice work is a wood, stone or metal framework consisting of criss-crossing patterns of strips.
When sun came through the lattice work, the patterns would reflect in the shadows, revealing gorgeous designs.
Prominent in Asia, they were mostly ornamental but also used as a window, room divider or door screen to let cool air into a room but no direct sunlight.
While Islamic and Japanese lattice work were typically geometric, Indian and Asian versions had religious motifs that included gods, animals and nature.
Today lattice work is simplified but still available as a great decorative piece to make a room more eclectic.
